Don’t be fooled – Elon Musk’s electric cars aren’t about to save the planet

Good read.

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

I doubt whether you will see this reported by the BBC:

From the Telegraph:

As Elon Musk presented the new Tesla 3, a fawning press announced that the “world-changing car” could “dominate” the market. Within days, 276,000 people had put down $1,000 to pre-order the car.

But the Model 3 doesn’t exist yet. There is no final production version, much less any production. Musk is “fairly confident” that deliveries could start by the end of 2017. But running on schedule isn’t Tesla’s strong suit. Meanwhile, Tesla’s current best-seller has been plagued by quality problems.

All of this might just be another iPhone vs Galaxy conversation – except that these vehicles are hailed as green saviours and so are subsidised to the tune of billions of pounds.

Before unveiling the car, Musk sanctimoniously declared that Tesla exists to give the planet a sustainable future…

No Statistically Significant Satellite Warming For 23 Years (Now Includes February Data)

From the department of “when does all that colourless, odourless, trace gas and plant food CO2, emitted by mankind in unprecedented amounts over the past 18+ years, do its evil thing?”

Watts Up With That?

In the above graphic, the green line is the slope since May 1993 without consideration of error bars. When including error bars, the range could be as low as zero as indicated by the blue line. It could also be an equal amount above the green line as indicated by the purple line.

The numbers that were used to generate the above graphic are from Nick Stokes’ Temperature Trend Viewer site.

For RSS, the numbers are as follows:
Temperature Anomaly trend
May 1993 to Feb 2016
Rate: 0.871°C/Century;
CI from -0.022 to 1.764;
t-statistic 1.912;
Temp range 0.118°C to 0.316°C

So in other words, for 22 years and 10 months, since May 1993, there is a very small chance that the slope…

Ooops! Another big failure of the climate models – rainfall did not increase

97% of climate models say that 97% of climate scientists are wrong.

Watts Up With That?

According to a new study in Nature, the Northern Hemisphere has experienced considerably larger variations in precipitation during the past twelve centuries than in the twentieth century. Researchers from Sweden, Germany, and Switzerland have found that climate models overestimated the increase in wet and dry extremes as temperatures increased during the twentieth century. The new results will enable us to improve the accuracy of climate models and to better predict future precipitation changes.

From AFP:

Predictions of unprecedented rainfall extremes in the 20th century driven by global warming turned out wrong, a study said Wednesday, casting doubt on methods used to project future trends. A massive trawl of Northern Hemisphere rainfall data for the last 1,200 years revealed there had been more dramatic wet-dry weather extremes in earlier, cooler centuries before humans set off fossil fuel-driven global warming.

This is problematic, said a study in the journal Nature, as the…

Cleaning Up After the Wind Power Fraud is Done: Local Governments Demanding $Millions from Developers Upfront

Industrial Wind Turbines – wrecking the planet and people’s lives, to “save” it…

STOP THESE THINGS

turbine collapse fenner NY Cleaning up the mess made in just a few short years …

****

Among the sillier claims made by the wind industry, its parasites and spruikers is that these things will run on the smell of an oily rag, for a quarter-of-a-century without needing so much as a shifting spanner.

The rather expensive truth is that, when they’re not bursting into flames, throwing their 10 tonne blades to the four winds or their 290 tonne hulks are being splattered over paddocks and roads, their blades and innards disintegrate within a few short years; requiring wholesale replacements of gearboxes, blades and bearings.

Replacing their internal and external workings comes at an enormous cost, which for the present is (mostly) covered by the phenomenal subsidies filched from taxpayers and/or power consumers. But, as voters and those that they vote for react to spiralling power prices and unstable grids

Climate Change Australia – Whyalla Wipe Out. Green Policies Hurting

The Weatherill Government’s over-zealous rush into wind power is directly responsible for the surging price of electricity in South Australia…

Climate Crisis Inc. strikes again.

PA Pundits - International

Bolt New 01By Andrew Bolt ~

The Whyalla wipe-out is indeed happening but in slow motion and energy-intensive industries die:

ClimateChangeAustralia[Steel-maker] Arrium owes money to 16 bank… The troubled steelmaker announced after its half-yearly results it may be forced to mothball its Whyalla operations if it cannot turnaround its financial fortunes.

About 10 per cent of the city’s working population is employed by Arrium.

Mr Sowerby said the city of Whyalla, which has a population of about 22,000, would be devastated if the steelworks shut.

And earlier:

Adding to gloom that has engulfed Whyalla in recent times, 15 OneSteel refractory contractors were told on Tuesday they no longer had jobs.

This follows the loss of around 1000 jobs since the start of last year. About 3000 people are employed via Arrium’s mining and steel operations in Whyalla.

Labor frontbencher David Feeney is foolishly calling for government assistance – having learned nothing from…

Scientists Recycling The Identical Fraud, Decade After Decade

‘If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.’ AH

Real Science

Experts say that global warming will make the West Antarctic Ice Sheet collapse in 250 years, and it is your fault!

Thirty-five years ago experts said it would happen in only 200 years. Apparently they have granted Earth an 85 year long reprieve.

Besides the fact that they are incompetent and plagiarizing prior research, they are also lying. Scientists have known for 40 years that it has nothing to do with the climate.

It is bad enough that they are lying about the cause, but they are hiding the fact that this process has been going on for nearly 200 years, and possibly much longer.
